I am running windows 7.
Installed WAMP.
Pretty sure everything is set up ok.
I can access the host within my own network at the following locations without a problem.

http://192.168.0.195:8080
http://kal-el.sytes.net:8080 - Set this up using No-Ip.com

I cannot hit this from an outside browser. Can anyone please help me. I have opened port 8080 on my router through port forwarding and my firewall on that machine using a incoming rule under TCP IP >advanced.

Thanks to anyone in advance.

does you isp block port 8080

incidentally why are you using port 8080? why not 80 which is the default?

Do you have an internal network router? If yes, are you routing requests from port 8080 to the internal network address of the server?

Because of lack of mention in your original post, do you have it online: the icon on the task bar near the clock, left click, there is an option for online/offline. By default it is offline meaning you can access it internally but it is blocked externally. Setting it online allows it to be accessed from the WAN side of the veil too.

Dude! You're using the same IP as my home server!

OK, seriously, there's two things you need to do.

First is make sure port 80 is open on your router, not port 8080.

Secondly, you need to redirect (on your router) port 80 over to your web serving computer.

are you sure your DNS is pointing to the correct IP address?
